against the city of cast me near kabul but with the country celebrated by independence day and a religious holiday the president extended an olive branch. to all of you from the start of the holiday president gunny is offering the taliban a conditional cease fire and if they accept he's prepared to extend that till the birthday of the prophet muhammad in november. we call upon the leadership of the taliban to welcome the which he said after guns for a long lasting and real peace and we urged them to ready themselves a peace talks based on islamic values and principles. jump while a clerk. at the same time the taliban said that they would release hundreds of prisoners the announcements came after a week of intense fighting the taliban launched a massive assault against the city of cows need some kabul residents on the streets
to celebrate the country's independence we're hopeful. that while it's not one that everyone wants to see the end of war in afghanistan everyone wished for a lasting peace all over the country we wish to live a better life. but this is gunnies second call for peace this year after a short lived three day cease fire back in june. and journalist attacked here caddied he joins us on the line now from kabul he's been following this story. this is not the first time that danny's offered a cease fire this year and just last week we saw fresh fighting the taliban also announcing that it with where that would withdraw protection from the red cross so what has propelled ghani to offer this cease fire now. well actually you're right two months ago during the first the festival danny also you know offered an unconditional actually offer proposal to the taliban but this time it's conditional
he says that you know he will give them the opportunity to embrace you and if they do agree and if they agree if they do. approve this proposal then you know for three months you'll just cease fire but the problem is that the taliban are always been going back on your promises i mean last time we quite remember that only for three or four days they accepted that ben but then shortly after that we you know witness quite a lot of attacks in kabul and in north of afghanistan and loads of afghan troops on afghan civilians have been killed two people are not really optimistic to be honest about. all five even though i mean we hear from international figures as well like today the need to take quick trip general also welcomed it and i've been speaking you know to other diplomats as well saying that is my the actually opening the gateway for the taliban to embrace peace for
a break to be for afghanistan so welcomed by the international community but first of course the taliban have to agree to it how are they reacting to the offer. one of the taliban actually you know when you read dear even read sage it doesn't really talk so much about this even though it's just they say that they would be releasing. a dozen of afghan prisoners that they are and captivity within the taliban groups but they haven't been really you know they're not breaking on this one issue of the dead but it seems like the taliban on quite a global reach but the problem is that the taliban is not one united need to get this point that me clarify that they are so much segregated and they are so much divided actually so that your money could stop the taliban if one group embraces actually welcome this peace for full though there might be other groups that they might be you know opposing it as they did in the us as well tactical dariya journalist an accomplice speaking to us thank you very much indeed thank you
